Is there something in between a supergroup and a one-time celebrity jam? Maybe. But sometimes it can be a bit…much (Chickenfoot anyone?) Let’s take a look at some recent collaborations, all of them pleasing.
Intense beauty is kind of what Bon Iver are all about, so why should the video be otherwise? Director NABIL (Kanye, Frank Ocean, Distant Relatives) lets the outrageous landscapes of Iceland and a small boy do the heavy lifting, with just a few tweaks.
Curated by Bon Iver, who will also perform, Pitchfork will be hosting it’s first event in Paris on October 28th and 29th. Aphex Twin, Iceage, Four Tet, Cut Copy, Real Estate and more will be there.
This week: Bon Iver leaves the cabin behind, Ty Segall brings hummable hooks, When Saints Go Machine sounds familiar, YACHT keeps doing what they do, and James Leyland Kirby explores music and memory as The Caretaker.
The first video from Bon Iver’s sophomore and self-titled album. And its kinda weird.
Stream new albums from Bon Iver and The Vaccines, a live performance from Deerhunter, and demos from Stars.
